Which I know isn't anything new, considering I am very technically challenged. On Saturday when out we checked out new cell phones for me, as mine is so basic it is crazy. We ended up with this one:
It's a Sony Xperia and it's an "Android" phone, whatever that means. Only discovered it was called that because dd told us! Dh has an i-phone so is sort of used to this type of phone. When the guy in the Bell guy was showing us what it could do dh was nodding and commenting; me I just looked more and more confused.
We decided in the end that yes I would get one at a cost of $51 a month, I was paying $17 a month for my last one. While we were paying and signing for everything, I mentioned to the guy that he had forgotten one important thing, how on earth am I supposed to turn the bloody thing on and off??? At that point there was sniggering from the sidelines as I said it in a loud enough voice for others to here.
Yep, he had sold a fancy phone to an idiot. He gave me his card and I did warn both him and dh that they would rue the day I ever got this phone as I would have a million questions. By that night dh was fed up of me and the phone. But as I said I told you this would happen.
Next day dd phoned and so she also got bombarded with questions. However as per her instructions I am only allowed to use it as a phone, send text messages and take photos. Once I have mastered that..........should only take a couple of years I am hoping.........then I can move onto other things. I do have internet on the phone, 500 MB or is it MG (?) per month, which is handy and dh has set it up so I can read my emails, got that figured out.
Have some contact names set up in it, thanks to dh. However I need to change my contact name as it's coming up as "Myself," but can't decide if I should be Mam or Gill? I am thinking probably Gill, right?
I am going out this morning, so will take it with me, so I can practice sending texts; that should annoy everyone on my list!!! If you want to be added to my list let me know and maybe I can send you annoying texts as well!!!
Next on my things to learn is how to use the DVR so I can watch movies and how to use the remote control so I can use the PVR (?) thingy to tape shows..........that should keep me busy over the next few years!!!
